Publisher's Summary

From the author of the critically acclaimed literary SF novels Spaceman Blues and Liberation comes an incandescent and thrilling post-apocalyptic tale in the vein of 1984 or The Road.

In the not-distant-enough future, a man takes a boat trip up the Susquehanna River with his most trusted friend, intent on reuniting with his son. But the man is pursued by an army, and his own harrowing past; and the familiar American landscape has been savaged by war and climate change until it is nearly unrecognizable.

Lost Everything is a stunning novel about family and faith, what we are afraid may come to be, and how to wring hope from hopelessness.

Great book disguised by imperfect narrator

I found this book tricky to listen to. I sense a great story and profundity, told through well-written English. However, the narrator speaks as though it was a 1940's newsreel, and the characterisations are poor. Seems a shame.

I think I might read the hardcopy version, as I sense, especially towards the end, that I was missing something extraordinary.

Don't waste your money!

I will usually always struggle through a book I spent money on. This one is terminal, the narration is poor, at best, the story is very hard to get into, impossible to stay with. I would not recommend.
